Many people live in their past and they don’t have time to focus on the future.
Whatever you choose to magnify (Good or bad), you will live with that.
People prefer to have a relationship at a distance than an intimate one. This is because, at a distance, people get to see what you want them to see. But when there is intimacy, they get to look into the person.
Instead of magnifying the wrongs of others, we should focus on and bring out the best in them.
Jesus’ question in Matthew 7:3 speaks volume. He asked, “why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eyes and pay no attention to the plank in your eyes?
This statement is telling us about the law of magnifying. You can’t see the speck of sawdust in the eyes of your neighbour, unless you magnify it by getting close.
What are you magnifying? When you see something in someone else that makes you angry, it also represents something that you also have within. Everybody has issues in life but we must embrace on their strength.
You have to stop magnifying and pick a mirror and work on your weakness. You have to start from your own self. You can’t help people you love when you are just having the same issue as them. You can’t treat people as garbage and love God. The way you love your neighbor is equal to the way you love yourself.
